This study attempts primarily to measure the financial performance of some selected privatecommercial banks in Bangladesh for the period 2006-2011 and to identify whether any relationship exists between a bank’s years of operation and its performance. For this purpose five banks have been selected from different generations. The financial performances of these banks have been scrutinized from the following four dimensions: (1) profitability (2) liquidity (3) credit risk and (4) efficiency. The study concluded that there is no specific relationship between the generation of banks and its performance. The performances of banks are dependent more on the management’s ability in formulating strategic plans and the efficient implementation of its strategies. The study findings can be helpful for management of private commercial banks in Bangladesh toimprove their financial performance and formulate policies that will improve their performance.
